THE MOST HOLY OF DAYS
We spend the weeks of Lent preparing for the celebration of Easter. Lent invites us to consider what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and how that translates into our own lives. Easter is the day of resurrection, the most holy day for Christians.
In order to truly be able to celebrate the joy of Easter morning, we need to travel through the events of Holy Week. On Maundy Thursday we gather at the table as Jesus did when he gathered with his disciples for the Last Supper. We hear the story of Jesus' arrest and crucifixion. If you are unable to attend our Maundy Thursday service or Good Friday service, consider reading Mark 14-16.
Would you like to sponsor a choir chair?
We hope everyone is enjoying our new speakers and organ (beautifully played by Mark), and the clearer sounds with the wonderful wood flooring in the chancel. Thanks for the support that has allowed this work to be done!
The next step is new chairs for the choir. To help finance this endeavor, and to honor those we love (or whose music we love), we are offering sponsorship of a choir chair. The price per chair is $175 and includes an engraved brass plaque on the chair back.
Questions can be directed to Angela in the church office during regular office hours.
